Remember the kid who played Kayla Scavo, the little devil troublemaker on “Desperate Housewives?” Such a juicy character.

Her name is Rachel G. Fox, now 16, with a thriving show business career. She’s been acting in movies (“Dream House”) and TV (“Melissa and Joey,” “Private Practice”), as well as singing and playing guitar in a couple of rock bands.

But Fox is also having success in a completely different world — Wall Street.


For the past year-and-a-half, she’s been actively day-trading stocks with her own money. She says she’s been racking up stellar returns, claiming a 30.4% gain in 2012, versus the benchmark S&P 500 which gained 13% for last year. She’s also helping teach people about investing via her website FoxOnStocks.com.

We’re impressed. Move over, Kramer. We’re following this kid.
